About Jon Roniger

Jon Roniger is a New Orleans native infamous for original songs of debaucheries and poetic mayhem straight out of the devil’s den. Simply stated in his song “NEW ORLEANS LULLABY,” he says, “I love the calamity, that holy insanity, I’m honored to swim in her angelic profanity.” With his vast repertoire of seven albums to date, including Live at the Mint in 2015, the 2014 Gypsyland in which he sings primarily in French, Dirty Gypsy in 2013 which boasts an ambitious track listing of 28 acoustic songs, and NOLA Rolls as his 2012 EP, versatility comes to Roniger as naturally as eating oysters and howling at a wrecking ball moon. His primary co-writer is the talented gyspy swinger Chris Gantry, who had a #1 hit, “Dreams of the Everyday Housewife” in 1968, and worked with musical legends including Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson.
